Student Voice is a vehicle that enables students to become more involved in the organisational structure of the Academy and the wider community. At Outwood Academy Portland, Student Voice is seen as an effective way to help transform education from the ‘bottom up’, through student input into Deep Learning, Deep Support and Deep Experience.
Students remain at the heart of everything we undertake at Outwood Academy Portland and The Family of Schools, therefore Student Voice is placed at the centre of everything that we undertake.
The main objectives are to:
Everything that takes place at Outwood Academy Portland is organised through the ‘Deeps’ structure hence Student Voice sits centrally in each of the three ‘Deeps’, plus an additional string called Communication to ensure the student body are kept informed on a regular basis about current projects.
At Outwood Academy Portland there are 30 fully trained Student Support Ambassadors on hand to ensure that the welfare of all students is central to the running of the academy. They are professionally trained to deal with a variety of issues.
